KACO new energy says it is now shipping its blueplanet M series of inverters with Tigo Energy's Management Unit (MMUs) integrated into the inverter.
The blueplanet 6400M and 7600M inverters are equipped with internal MMUs and the PV Safe button. This integrated solution simplifies system design, increases safety and reduces the amount of DC balance-of-system equipment, according to KACO and Tigo.
Incorporated MMUs increase intelligence within the inverter by allowing maximum power point tracking and impedance matching at the inverter and module level, providing the highest possible level of functionality and energy harvest, the companies explain. This technology also enables control of the input voltage range directly at the inverter and provides cost-optimized electronics within the inverter, removing the cost of boost-stage electronics and other control devices.
